Invitation to sing at world-record attempt for Children in Need – Thu 7 Nov 9.45am

A world-record attempt is being organised for BBC Children in Need – for the most people singing songs in a relay. This is where each word from the songs is sung by a different person. The first person sings the first word, the person next to them the second, and so on, until the song finishes. The songs will be well-loved nursery rhymes. The attempt will take place from 9.45am to 11am on Thursday 7th November 2019 at the Crucible Theatre. If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact Kasturi Pindar 0114 212 3007 or kasturi.pindar@twinkl.co.uk
